8:15 am
service. and so all of those things together are contributed. where i disagree with councilmember gaia as we are not lax about this problem at all. we have toughened all of our penalties for illegal dumping. we have a rewards program for people who provide information that can lead to someone being fined or in some places criminal charges can be brought. if you witness illegal dumping and we encourage people to get camera footage of that, that really helps us. call 311. ulcer 311 is the number to call if you see illegal dumping and you want the city to come and pick it up. be clear about this. the city of oakland cannot be your maid service. we really need people to change their behavior. that is why we have invested a lot not only in these new trash detectives, environmental enforcement ofcers are actually tracking down the source of dumping, but it is

8:17 am
construction debris outside of someone's house, and we were able to bring that person to justice. >> if it happened in front of my house and to be on video, so much of the stuff have been on the street for weeks. for mac that is hard. you have to get evidence of who did the dumping in the investigative work.>> we have two important things to talk about as well. number one, oakland streets are getting repaved. you are very proud of that. >> there is a bit of a battle between san francisco and oakland. it is a friendly battle, and we will all come out winners. >> the big day cleanup his battle for the bay. we are trying to get as many volunteers as possible to help out on creeks of bay day. that is why it is a battle for the bay. while san francisco and oakland have a friendly wager about who can actually get more volunteers out working that day, honestly, whichever city wins that battle, the bay winds
